Looking for Los Angeles Vintage/Classic Mechanic

Hi,

I just inherited a '71 280SE 6cyl. We had it current and running about 7 years ago, however it unfortunately has been sitting in a SoCal driveway since then. I'm able to get it running, however not for long — it stalls after 10minutes. I'm looking for a knowledgeable mechanic in the Los Angeles area for advice / and future work.

Any information appreciated.

Here is a photo of it 7 years ago, needs some paint restoration, but otherwise rust free

Cheers
—Roo

Hey Nate - if you could pass along your recommendations for the SGV (or anywhere in the Pasadena/Burbank/Glendale/SGV area), I'd be much obliged.

Just wanted to say thanks again for referring me to AGA. They seem knowledgeable and are very professional (and fast). Looking forward to working with them in the future as well.
